Our special guest of the night was Loris from Aperol – he even flew in from Italy just for the event, rumour has it straight from his gondola – and he made sure all the Yelpers had an Aperol Spritz to sip as soon as they arrived, adding what Ben M thought was ‘a real kick to the night!’. Loris chatted to the Yelpers about the perfect time for enjoying an Aperol: in the sun, with some light bites. While we can’t even guarantee sunshine in Glasgow, Firebird makes you feel all warm and sunny with its beautiful bright orange feature wall and floor to ceiling windows!
Yelpers sampled three Firebird pizzas: spiced lamb, courgette and Serrano ham which were a hit all round! One Yelper noted that ‘pizza was snarfed up so quickly–surely a good sign if it's all gone! The Ham and Rocket did not disappoint and I couldn't wait to try some more!’
It was then time for the Yelp pizzas: before the event, Yelpers had submitted their ‘dream pizzas’ and three were selected to be made on the night. Congrats to Jen W, Nicola C and Elizabeth T for getting their pizzas to the final!
Jen W’s McMegatron featured goats’ cheese, caramelised onion and haggis – a true Scottish pizza! Nicola C went for something a little different with chickpeas, chorizo, red pepper and Manchego cheese (the Sensational Spanish!). The Thrilla by Elizabeth T was topped with caramelized onion, pine nut, pears, green salad and gorgonzola!
